OnePlus 12 Review: The Future of Flagship Smartphones


The highly anticipated OnePlus 12, which boasts cutting-edge technology and exceptional features for a premium smartphone, is now available. Its performance, battery life, camera capabilities, and other features will all be looked at in this review. Let’s talk about what distinguishes the OnePlus 12 from other smartphones in the cutthroat market.

OnePlus 12 Review: Price in India

The OnePlus 12 comes in two versions, unlike the OnePlus Open. With the base variant now costing Rs. 64,999 and offering 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, the noticeable price increase (from Rs. 56,999) seems justified. With 512GB of storage and 16GB of RAM, the second variant retails for Rs. 69,999, which is fairly competitive given the available hardware.

Powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor

The latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 3 chip powers the OnePlus 12, which is supported by either 12GB or 16GB of RAM (as reviewed). It’s reasonable to assume that the most advanced Qualcomm chip will be a powerhouse, but OnePlus also says that its “Trinity Engine” optimizes the CPU, RAM, and storage for a more stable and faster experience.

Although it’s usually best to take these claims with a grain of salt, the OnePlus 12 feels incredibly quick to use. At its highest settings, the action role-playing game Genshin Impact displayed a flawless gameplay experience with 60 frames per second and no lag or stuttering. PUBG, a battle royale shooter, was equally silky smooth. Likewise, for Asphalt 9: Legends Racer.

OnePlus 12 Review: Performance

More significantly, this is a very dependable mobile gaming device because the 120Hz display keeps up and the touch sampling rate is precise and on point. When the display is in the Pro Screen color mode, the colors appear relatively accurate. At 510 ppi, text and images look razor sharp. I had the OnePlus 12 set to its maximum resolution during the review because it’s still one of the few smartphones in this price range with a QHD+ display this good.

Its peak brightness of 4,500 nits makes it ideal for outdoor use as well. However, this also benefits HDR10+ or Dolby Vision content when viewed on compatible streaming apps. When viewing photos in their full dynamic range and recording videos at 30 frames per second in Dolby Vision, which the phone is capable of, the ProXDR display is also utilized. When playing games, the audio quality sounded very immersive and was of decent quality. When it came to watching the video, it was also adequate. Now that the phone finally supports an IP65 rating, Aqua Touch also functions fairly well when there is water on the display and can be a lifesaver on rainy days.

Battery Life

The battery life is also very good. In our standard video loop battery test, the phone lasted a solid 28 hours and 6 minutes, which was well beyond what was expected of a smartphone at this price point and higher. I was able to easily manage nine hours of screen time a day, or roughly a day and a half of heavy usage (connected to both data and W-Fi). This included using the camera, playing games for an hour, and streaming videos for three hours.

When the battery finally did run out, it took only 37 minutes to finish the charge using the 80W capped wired charging method, which managed to reach 99 percent of its capacity in 30 minutes. Although OnePlus did not give us their AirVOOC charger, we were unable to test the wireless charging feature.
